People to People Ambassador Programs Taps Sound Telecom’s USA-Based Call Centers to Handle Critical Seasonal Support Programs

Sound Telecom, a leading nationwide provider of telephone answering, call center and cloud-based phone services will now handle the holiday season support programs for People to People Ambassadors Programs.

Spokane, Washington, October 29, 2013

People to People Ambassador Programs, headquartered in Spokane, Washington, has selected Sound Telecom to handle its critical winter-based support programs. Carrying the vision of Founder President Dwight D Eisenhower, People to People Ambassador Programs is one of the worlds most recognized and respected student travel providers and travels more than 15,000 students to more than 40 countries each year. Home to more than 200 employees, the company is dedicated to the design and delivery of travel programs geared toward high school and college students.

“Our travelers get the best of both worlds from our programs – great educational travel experiences and excellent customer support,” said Rhonda Lashbrook, Delegate Care Manager for People to People. “We don’t cut corners on customer service. Our traveling students require support on a 24/7 basis.”

Sound Telecom will be handling after-hours and over-flow customer support calls for People to People, which increases during the winter and holiday season. The additional support will provide student travelers and their families with around the clock support and also shorten response times to questions and inquiries during the planning stages and while the students are traveling.

“I consider it an honor to support People to People Ambassador Programs. We have worked with Rhonda and her team for more than 2 years. I was thrilled to learn that Rhonda had additional support opportunities where we can assist,” said Brian Gabriel, Chief Operations Officer for Sound Telecom. “The job we perform for People to People is to ensure that important calls from student travelers and their parents are never missed. It is imperative that People to People’s team be kept aware of all travel-related issues at all times.”

People to People Winter Programs include educational trips to Peru, Spain, Italy and London, to name a few. For more information about People to People’s Winter Programs visit:
